Ghostbot : Some of the work I do there!

We worked on a proof-of-concept test to show what Pharrell + Ghostbot would look like. Pharrel was a wonderful client to work for.  I got to do some of the Story Board, Character Designs, Layouts and Animations! Bellow are a few samples :

Storyboard poses :

My awesome friend Jeremy Polgar taught me how to do gifs!  By the way, you guys should go see his work online, Jeremy Polgar is SUPER DUPER talented.
I'm a big fan of his work :
And his reel :
So the gif bellow is an example of the sort of personal animation I adore doing inbetween work : 

I worked onto some fun stickers for Facebook over at Ghostbot. 
Alan Lau was my director on it and of course a huge help and endless source of 
inspiration! Alan created the original design of Biscuit (the corgi) and I drew/ animated
the poses you can see below. I created the original design of Mugsy (the frenchie) and drew animated/ the followings stickers:

      And bellow are some of the still stickers I created and colored. I also included
some roughs that didn't make it on Facebook : 

I commute 4 hours a day to go to Ghostbot so I draw A LOT of people. While flipping through the pages of my sketchbook, I got the idea to just animate a couple of those faces together. So here's the little animated methamorphose practice : 

Bellow is a break down of a few shots I animated on the marketing video for "Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time". I have worked on this project a little longer than a year and had a blast! Please, note that Natasha Brown and Kris Toscanini helped me coloring and symbolizing some of these poses that I drew. And of course my 3 directors Roque Ballesteros, Alan Lau and Brad Rau are always a huge help, they are teaching me so much every single day. I am the luckiest drawer/ animator on earth with these guys!

Exercising some more volume, anatomy and movements ; my three passions in life ^^

When I have free time, I love to animate anatomy! Anatomy to me is the best way to learn about volume  and movement. And holly cow, I have A LOT to learn about these two issues!

Imagination Sketches

Here's a few sketch book pages that I worked in Photoshop for fun. By the way, I usually put raw sketch book images in here :  Go check it out!
Lately, I'm having a blast working on combining anatomical shapes .... I may look like a creep because I just draw anatomy all the time... but it's truly the best for me to learn about shape language and volume.... 

Sketching in Flash some anatomical stuff as a warm up before I start work :

Me and Jérémie working hard onto some animations ;) The idea is that we both have our own as the cover image of our Facebook profils :

A few drawings I did for people I love:

Jérémie and I won a price for the Metro Contest in L.A thanks to that drawing. For a while, this drawing was shown on the screens of every bus running in the city. The theme of the contest was "corruption" :
Trying some pastel my german aunt sent me :

Here's a sample of a comic book that Jérémie and I have been working on. Based on one of his script :

.Anatomy and watercolor!! Two of my favorite things ever :
And some imagination drawings I did when I was still living in France :
